Tech's student body is made up of 
4,700 individuals; there are those who 
love the school, respect the chance to be 
able to learn and grow. These are the stu- 
dents who give a day of their time to clean 
the campus of its trash, or volunteer some 
kind of service to put a little into the school 
that they have gotten so much out of. 
These students realize what an opportunity 
they have and wish that they had more 
time to take more classes. 

These students also can be found partic- 
ipating in the organizations on campus 
while carrying a full academic load. These 
are the students that realize the advan- 
tage they have. They come to classes on 
test day, they learn in spite of the ones 
who sit in the back of the classroom and 
sleep or pop their gum making disturb- 
ances for the others. When tests come 
around the students who care are ready, 
while others yell familiar phrases such as: 
"I wasn't here that day," or "Hey, get on, 
man." 

One can see there are many types of 
people at Tech, but most do care. 



rs certainly do. 

i ever wondered: What is so great about violence, or 

of attention on skin color instead of the quality of 
are some of the aspects that we must confront in 

hen will youth and adults be able to respect each 

, even when they don't agree? Here are the ques- 

id the answers.

. . . On a nationwide level, we have 
seen a great breakdown in morals in the 
past 15 years. Drugs, alcohol, and pre- 
marital sex seem to be laying out a future 
in which we will get away from religious 
strengths, the united power of the family 
and the freedoms that have built our soci- 
ety. Now is the time to question these 
practices, as we must remember "a 
democracy is only the luxury of a disci- 
plined society." 

So let us stop, look at ourselves and our 
peers and question what we do and how 
we do it. We must take the proper steps 
today in order to attain our desires for our 
future. 

Look at reality, return to humanity, 
before it is too late! 








... around us,

we learn in

Green and white banners trailed be 
thousands of students. It was the pep 
sion expressing that excitement that so 
many of us feel on Homecoming day. 

Despite the fact that trouble followed 
the pep session, the Homecoming spirit 
was not broken. Spirit-filled students, 
teachers and parents alike filled the sta- 
dium that evening, showing their excite- 
ment in enthusiastic cheers.

rooms. The floats circled around the field 
carrying those who helped to make them 
and the king and queen candidates. After 
crdftmanship and other factors had been 
judged, Roll Room 648 was selected as the 
winner. Next was the announcement of 
senior class officers'.

Coming up last to stop the half-time pro- 
gram with a boom, was the fireworks dis- 
play. Bright colors filled the sky and ech- 
oes of oohs and ahhs came from the 
stands. 

Tech fought a hard battle, but the game 
was a failure. Even though we lost the 
game, Titans filed out of the stadium full of 
pride.

School plays show talented Titans 



In the spring of 1 976, students on Tech campus had the chance 
to see their fellow students take up the acting roles as school plays 
were presented throughout the semester. These plays were: OUR 
AMERICAN COUSIN, THE SCHEMING LIEUTENANT, and PURSUIT 
OF HAPPINESS. Robert Maloy, now retired, coached these produc- 
tions, working with the students after school many nights. The 
plays, shown in the forum for all to see, were sponsored by the 
Social Studies Department. English classes also attended showings 
of the Bicentennial presentations.

This year's musical turned out to be one 
of the funniest, and best acted musicals 
put on by Tech students in a few years. 
ONCE UPON A MATTRESS had many 
super-dramatic moments: the crying of 
Mike Thomas and the sleeping of Cheryl 
Cooper. From the halls of Normandy to 
the bells on Dave Lewis' head, the show 
had the humor desired by two screaming 
audiences. 

The story centered around a sad prince 
who wanted a bride. Along came Princess 
Winifred to battle the queen for her son's 
hand in marriage. In the end, the princess 
won after squelching evil plots of cheating 
by the minstrel, the jester, and the mute 
king.

76 Prom: Evening of Enjoyment 




Spring of 1 976, also brought the Junior- 
Senior prom. This was the third year that 
the two classes held it together. The prom 
was held at the beautiful Marriot Hotel 
where a dinner and dancing were part of a 
full evening of enjoyment. Crowned as 
Junior Prom King and Queen were Mike 
Thomas and Tammie Seats, while Teresa 
James and Dwayne Engram were selected 
by the Seniors for their royalty. The prom 
was held on Thursday, April 15. Much to 
the surprise of many students, however, it 
turned out to be a beautiful evening for 
everyone. As the night ended all the well- 
dressed couples went their own ways, 
some to be back next year, others to go on 
into life.

Life on campus goes outside and in 



Have you ever taken a look at the cafe- 
teria during the first week of school? 
Notice how it always seems to say, Tech is 
going to be overcrowded this year. But 
Tech isn't overcrowded. It is wholesomely 
populated with talented people such as 
Rick Moore '76 who has ventured forth to 
a career of acting. (Bit part in KING 
KONG.) 



And where did it all start? That first 
week of school in a cafeteria that cried out 
for mercy under the heavy traffic of fresh- 
men who thought they knew where they 
were going, and those few upperclassmen 
who did not intend for the freshmen to find 
out where they were going. It was all in 
fun. 

Tech is big; therefore a relationship with 



people isn't more profound than the loy- 
alty Titans have for the school. The beauty 
of Tech's college-sized campus and the 
varying architectural design of the build- 
ings are enough to pull a person away in a 
fantasy world that only a place like Tech 
can provide.

Hunger does not stop when you take a pic- 
ture of it. 



It is a mystery that birds can sing. 

That men can fly and reach the moon and then return to earth. 

It is a mystery that one can see, 

That one can hear, that we have minds, that we can think and plan. 

It is a mystery that we can speak and share our thoughts with others, and through 

TV 
Our thoughts spread everywhere. 

It is a mystery that we can write and share our thoughts with those unborn 
Who take our places here on earth. 
It is a mystery that we are born, that we can live, that we can grow, that we can 

die. 
It is a mystery that in our own genes is found the pattern of all living things, the 

gene that tells each cell its duty. 
It is a mystery that we get warmth, light and power stored in jet black coal, 
Sunlight came to earth countless years ago. 
It is a mystery we have the earth, we see the moon and all the stars, stars which 

are the suns of other galaxies than our own in the unmeasured depths of space. 
Are all these mysteries for me? 
I wonder how. 
I wonder why. 



Was all the cosmos made for earth-bound man alone? 

It cannot be; on other planets circling other suns 

There must be life, perhaps a life more sentient than our own. 

A signal, then, a radio message send 

To see if we can bridge the distance we're apart. 

We wait reply; we wait, alas, in vain, 

For answer to our call would come 

Two-thousand years since we're dead. 

I wonder when it all began. 

I wonder how it all will end. 



Charles F. Teeters, former Tech vice-principal, was ninety-five years old when he wrote these poems 
recently. He retired thirty years ago but is still remembered by Tech friends, some of whom were his 
pupils.

It's Christinas 
at Tech again 



Christmas time came to Tech in the hearts of all. It seemed as 
though the entire campus changed during the two to three weeks 
moving up to Christmas. The season was started by the Music 
Department's annual presentation of Christmas in the Round, which 
features most of the major music groups at Tech. Keeping in stride 
with the merriment, the different organizations had their individual 
activities. Ice skating was sponsored by the SAO, while the 300 
program sponsored a roller skating party. During all this, the Sen- 
ior Council featured a dance on December 1 3 in the Cafeteria. Key 
Club, with SAO assistance, completed a successful Toys-for-Tots 
drive on campus, adding more to the true feeling of the season. 
Other club activities took place in the Service Club, XYZ Club, and 
SAO. 

Then on the last Friday before vacation the Techoir embarked on 
a city-wide caroling spree, bringing a wonderful sound to many 
downtown business people and shoppers, followed by caroling to 
friends of Tech on the Monday after. However, the Tech Christmas 
was not over until the Techoir Christmas Special was seen on TV on 
December 24. It's obvious that the Christmas spirit was at Tech.

Fall play's an odd one 




November 10 the Forum. Students gath- 
ered from all corners of the campus. The 
lights dimmed, the curtains opened, and 
suddenly, before all eyes appeared the 
great fall play, THE ODD COUPLE. Fea- 
tured in the title roles were Mike Thomas 
as Felix and Mike Greene as Oscar. Other 
performers were Edwin Marshall, Orron 
Coleman, Chris Warrenburg, Joe E. 
Brown, Cecilia Carter, and Alfenia Martin. 



The play was a takeoff on the popular tel- 
evision program. 

For those who didn't see the play, it was 
about a man who joins his separated 
buddy after his marriage fails. In the end 
the perfectionist finds romance with not 
one, but two young females and leaves his 
distraught partner to return to the life of 
being a slob.

Saluting JER ATS connection 



Tech has a very special neighboring 
school. Some of its students take a few 
classes here at Tech. Which school does 
this? The James E. Roberts School, of 
course. 

The Roberts School was formed for the 
purpose of teaching handicapped children 
and giving them physical and occupational 
therapy. 



The school runs on the same schedule as 
all city public schools. Every child is trans- 
ported by bus to and from the school. 
There are three special buses assigned just 
for the students in wheel chairs. These 
buses have a lift on the side that raises the 
chairs onto the base of the bus. The chairs 
are then tied down and the students have 
safety belts to hold them in. 



This year, Roberts School will be send- 
ing us six graduates. These seniors are 
enrolled in a senior roll room and all take 
at least one class here at Tech. Some of 
these classes include biology, house con- 
struction, child development, and classes 
in the Career Center. 

There are also other Roberts students 
attending here from freshmen to seniors.

FLFFFF flies high tohelp 
students travel abroad 



How did we get to see such great shows 
as HEE HAW; WELCOME BACK, KOTTER; 
MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN; or 
STARSKY AND HUTCH, with only a little 
change in name? Through the courtesy of 
the Foreign Language Department's pres- 
entation of the annual FLFFFF show. 

Not only were there famous television 
shows, but they were interwined with 
Band-Aid, McDonald's, Alka-Seltzer, and 



Dial deodorant commercials. THE PRICE IS 
RIGHT, the EVENING NEWS, HAPPY 
DAYS, and many others were also pre- 
sented in the student version. 

The purpose of the presentation was to 
assist students in making a trip to another 
foreign country for the summer. It's an 
ideal format for student involvement and 
entertainment, a great program.

Perhaps one of the greatest natural happenings of our four 
years at Tech took place during the year 1 977. Let us never forget 
the great snow of January. Temperatures dropped to record-break- 
ing lows with wind chill factors around 60 below zero; snow drifted 
up to three and four feet with some parts of Indianapolis having 



snow in higher proportions. 

School was closed for 1 1 days while the city was urged to cut 
back on heating. Athletic schedules were revised, and the first 
semester was extended one week.

What are the responsibilities of a stu- 
dent who is in a club or activity here at 
Tech High School? First of all, there is the 
Student Affairs Organization. This is the 
Student Council for the school. 

It starts at the grass roots, the roll room. 
A person is elected or appointed to repre- 
sent his respective roll room. His job is to 
seek the desires of the students in his roll 
room and take them to the representative 
body meetings, where ideas are submitted 
to the executive board. After the repre- 
sentative meeting, it is the responsibility of 
the individual to report to his roll room. 

The function of the executive board 
member is to take the proper steps to 
execute the ideas submitted by the student 
representatives. 

An executive board member can be on 
the board in three ways: Three representa- 



tives are elected by each class,- freshman, 
Sophomore, junior, and senior. A repre- 
sentative is appointed by each club 
involved with student activities. A person 
may join through an associate member- 
ship. He does this by giving six hours of 
service to Tech and by attending all SAO 
meetings. All people involved must show 
an interest in the betterment of Tech high 
school. 

There are some 50 different organiza- 
tions for student involvement on campus. 
The SAO is only one of them, but the SAO 
is the official student body representative 
for the school. You can make the student 
body effective for a student body is only 
as strong as its weakest person. Tech 
needs more responsibility, less apathy and 
defeatism on the part of individual stu- 
dents. Get involved!

Marching 
Band 

Majorettes 
Whoop it up 

The Titanettes twirled and punched their 
way through another year under the direc- 
tion of Kim Ferguson, Pom-Pon captain; 
and Donna Adam, Twirlers captain. The 
girls performed at every home football 
and basketball game — both pre-game 
and halftime. 

They also appeared at the Shortridge 
game at Market Square Arena. In the fall 
they marched with the band at the James 
Whitcomb Riley parade at Greenfield, 
Indiana. They took part in the CYO march- 
ing contest and the opening of the new 
inner loop of Interstate 70. 

The co-captains made up all routines, 
and by practicing both during and after 
school, the girls perfected their perform- 
ances. 

Working on SNAP and SMILE, the girls 
looked forward to participating in the 
State Majorette Contest in March and the 
500 Festival Parade at the close of the 
year. 

The Marching Band had another suc- 
cessful year playing at all of the home 
football games, the most exciting and ful- 
filling performance being at the Homecom- 
ing game. The two drum majors are Robin 
Bruer and Jeff Berry.

Concert Band 
for a start 



Concert Band is made up of ambitious

They can read music and take pride in 
improving their performance. 

Meeting the eighth period each day 
under the direction of Edward Evans, they 
are making their way to Symphonic Band 
and Orchestra. 

The group includes clarinets, flutes, 
trumpets, trombone — the usual instru- 
ments to provide band experience.

Symphonic and Stage bands are tops in music 



The Symphonic Band is the highest rank- 
ing of all the bands. Most of the people in 
the group help make up the Orchestra. It 
helps to form the Marching Band and Pep 
Band. 

Over the year, the group participated in 
spring organizational contests, a spring 
concert and the graduation. 

There are approximately 50 students in 
the band this year. 



How many of you knew Tech has a 
dance band? Well we do, and it's com- 
posed of some of the most skilled musi- 
cians we have. 

In fact, it's so talented that last year the 
band auditioned for, and received an invi- 
tation to Ball State's Jazz Festival. At the 
festival, Wayne Watson, our band's lead- 
ing guitarist, put the other bands to shame 
with his guitar solo that won him The Out- 



standing Guitar Solo Award. 

The 23 members of the band demanded 
everyone's attention at the Gift and 
Hobby Show on November 9, and 
touched people's hearts at Tech's Open 
House on November 1 2, and of course 
they auditioned for Ball State's Jazz Festi- 
val again this year.

Bells, strings 
orchestra, 
give variety 



The String Ensemble is a group of fine 
musicians, who show their outstanding 
qualities when they perform. 

They engaged in many activities, enter- 
taining at dinners and private parties. 

The first event was a principals' meeting 
at the downtown office of the Indianapolis 
Public Schools, attended also by members 
of the School Board. 

Bell Choir had a successful year with 
many programs including, WISH Televi- 
sion show, Childrens Pavilion, Sherwood, 
Senior Citizens, Indianapolis Hilton and 
many churches. 

The choir has a membership of 16 per- 
sons, adding one to last year's attend- 
ance. 

The orchestra one of our largest musical 
groups. It has instruments ranging from a 
bass to a bass clarinet from a flute to a 
drum. This year we had a special instru- 
ment, a harp, played by a student teacher, 
Cum. 

Orchestra had a one-half hour program 
on Channel 8 on the Exercise in Knowl- 
edge show.

Octette finds 
new spirit 



Which music group contains eight 
young men who tend to create many ludi- 
crous performances which keeps their 
audiences roaring? That's right, the Boys' 
Octette. 

The group really had an enjoyable year. 
Many of their musical performances 
included imitating reindeer, posing as girls 
and pretending to get lost before pro- 
grams. 

The job of being a new director seemed 
to be no problem for Paul Prather who 
guided the Octette through the past year.

Laughter sets 
Ensemble tone 



Four sopranos, four seconds, four altos, 
a few songs, a few dances, and a lot of 
cheer and happiness. Combine all of these 
and you'll get the Girls' Ensemble. 

The girls were very busy this year. They 
performed at schools and the Art Show at 
the Fairgrounds. Members from a high 
school in Ohio came to visit Tech early in 
the year, and the Ensemble showed their 
appreciation by staging a return visit on 
March 25. 

Mrs. Kandis Brown directs and accom- 
panies the group.

program for the Naval Reserve and a tele- 
vision taping for the show Roads to Learn- 
ing.

Techoir — The Great 'Race' 



When people walk into Room 648 dur- 
ing the fifth period they see 60 of Tech's 
finest young men and women. These 
young people compose the Techoir. Here 
are 60 of the finest high school voices in 
Indiana. This was confirmed by Tech's win- 
ning first place in 1 975-76 state competi- 
tion. 

"Canimus Ex Aminus" is the motto and 
purpose of the Techoir. Translated, it 
means "Sing From the Heart." 

Techoir is not merely an organization, 
but it is a family of young people who do 
not consider each other black or white, but 
green. 

William Moon is the director. He spends 
his time, money, and energy making 
Techoir number one. 

Officers in Techoir are: Bill Cox and 
Beth Aubrey, co-presidents; Alex Hong, 
secretary; Anson Freeman, treasurer; 
Roschelle Majors, hostess; Fred Lane and 
Jody Crouch, junior representatives.

Music classes, right on tune 




As one looks through this section about 
Tech's music department, it becomes obvi- 
ous that much is offered. But what classes 
lay behind these students who show their 
talent successfully? 

Well let's start at the beginning and 
work up. There are band classes which 
range from beginning band to symphonic 
band. There also specialization classes of 
Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion. 
Orchestra grabs a line in there with results 
in String Ensemble. Moving on, there are 
chorus classes which work up through the 
ranks to Techoir and the small ensembles. 
But most important are such classes as 
Music Theory, Conducting, Black Music 
and Jazz. These all teach the basic funda- 
mentals up to the advanced music knowl- 
edge to the student. These classes are 
important for music majors and those who 
will seek college degrees.

Lab tuning in on key 





0** 




The Tech Music Department has always 
been an explosive department. There are 
many classes to be taken, and this past 
year Tech added something new, a Piano 
Lab with 24 individual units and one mas- 
ter control unit at a cost of over $20,000. 
The lab is open to all — freshmen to sen- 
iors, expert pianists and people who don't 
even know where middle C is. 

Based on a programmed learning sys- 
tem, the lessons vary. Each lesson offers a 
different goal. Until this goal is reached, 
the pupil doesn't move on. The classes 
don't get into technicalities because the 
piano units aren't set up for that, but they 
do focus on the different music forms. 

In the first semester all students were 
together, but in the second semester, 
classes were expanded from four to six to 
accommodate students in respect to their 
skills. In these classes enrichment of skills 
was a goal. 

Instructors were newcomers, Karen 
Nagy and Paul Prather, and Mrs. Kandis 
Brown, a veteran teacher at Tech. In the 
words of Mr. Prather, "It has been a suc- 
cess."

SOL, COE, takin' 
care of business 



There is an organization at Tech that very few students are 
aware exists. This year-round organization is Cooperative Office 
Education, (COE for short). 

COE is designed to give students with above average grades in 
business education, a chance to practice and sharpen their skills 
here at school and actually use them on a job each day after 
school. Along with cash pay, each student also receives four credits 
per year. The students, who must be seniors and business educa- 
tion majors, are taught to be businesslike and quite professional. 

This year's COE group participated in many competitive events. 
Preparation for these gave them further experience. 

Another organization of student interest is lOL-lntensive Office 
Laboratory. This is a senior business course headed by Mrs. Anne 
Cummins. The program is designed for prospective office workers 
and further experimenting with their business skills and office pro- 
cedures. For a person looking for a good business opportunity, 
look to IOL.

DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION — defined as a study or 
course in the channel of marketing goods and services 
to the consumer. 

DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION CLUBS OF AMERICA — an 
organization which provides fun, involvement, respon- 
sibility, and education for a student interested in busi- 
ness marketing. 

Well, guess what! Tech has one of the top DECA 
chapters in the state of Indiana. In the past two years 
Tech's chapter has placed second and fourth in state 
competition respectively. But, not only is the chapter 
active on a state level, they also play an active role 
right here on the campus. Who can forget the success- 
ful "Titan Shack" which was sponsored by the group? 
This was just one thing that this chapter accomplished 
during the year. The guidance of Mrs. Delsie Shoe- 
maker and the chapter officers ended a great year. 

Another area of interest is the Vocation Industrial 
Clubs of America, which centers around the Career 
Center. Students with an interst in a vocational career 
find their interests lodged in this group.

Key Club unlocks hearts 



Did you know that the Key Club at Tech 
is one of the few in the nation that allows 
girls to be members? Did you also know 
that Key Club sponsors many of the major 
events on campus? Well, if you didn't you 
do now. 

The Key Club started the year by spon- 
soring the annual Homecoming activities 
which included a fireworks display, king 
and queen elections, and float competi- 
tion. 

Key Club also sponsored the Toys for 
Tots drive, and organization of football 
and basketball program bulletins. Other 
activities included ringing bells for the Sal- 
vation Army, chairing the Valentine Tea, 
and sponsoring the Student-Faculty Bas- 
ketball Game. 

President Tom Harvey attended the 
International Key Club convention over the 
summer in Anaheim, California as a voting 
delegate. Key Club members also repre- 
sented the school at their district conven- 
tion at French Lick, Indiana.

SAO works 
for student 
organization 



What's happening in the Student Affairs 
Organization? Well, after a tough period 
of rebuilding, things began to pick up. The 
year began with a major recruitment of 
new members, this was followed by a 
homecoming pep session sponsored by the 
SAO. They continued working to get stu- 
dents involved for the student body's 
good. They sponsored the basketball, 
track, and jamboree queen competitions, 
an ice skating party, the organization of a 
student representative council, and a very 
successful canned food drive, and assisted 
the Key Club in the Toys-for-Tots drive. 
Many of the members were also seen in 
the concession stand at all the home ath- 
letic events. But perhaps the greatest 
achievement of the year was the organiza- 
tion of a representative student committee 
which met with the administration to confer 
on campus activities and problems. 

The officers were David Lewis, presi- 
dent; Debbie Lewis, vice-president; Tracie 
Woods, secretary; and Marilyn Lucas, 
treasurer. Things are looking up for the 
SAO, but they still and always will need 
the student body's cooperation.

Some of the activities the club has been 
doing are selling Homecoming mums, and 
sponsoring a Thanksgiving canned goods 
drive in which the SAO participated also. 
They also had a canned goods drive for 
Christmas. They reached the hearts of 
many shut-ins with their Christmas carol- 
ing, letting people know someone really 
cares. 

In the spring they sponsored a college 
tea for the juniors and seniors with speak- 
ers from different colleges. For a kick-off 
they entertained new and prospective 
members at a tea.

day out of January, February, March and April, during the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th periods for 
twenty minutes, anyone who wished to express his talents, could contact the Human Rela- 
tions Council for an audition. 

February was held by individuals and organized groups. January, March and April, how- 
ever, were booked completely by the Wrestling Team, the Drama Club and the Home Eco- 
nomics classes, who held a Fashion Show.

got to go down 



The Bowling Club was knocking the pins 
down at Bowl-O-Mat in the Twin-Aire 
Shopping Center. With Ellen Eads and 
Kent Demmary as sponsors the club had 
three members on each team. The average 
of the three was usually around 1,100 
pins; the best team's average was a little 
higher, and the not-so-good teams a little 
less. The pins were really falling this year.

Drama Club brings action to the lights 



After five weeks of rehearsals, finding 
costumes, filming, and stage designing, 
the Drama Club showed many students 
what the club is all about. 

On December 14, the group presented 
their annual show of one act plays. This 
year's plays were CANNON CAMERA 
written by Tracie Woods, directed by Tra- 



de and Frank Meid; MASQUES directed 
by Mike DeBurger; FLIGHT 13 TO 
NOWHERE written for the Carol Burnett 
Show, directed by Carol Keithley and 
Kathy Sullivan. 

Many Thespians points were earned by 
all members during the plays. These are 
earned by acting, writing, directing, doing 



stagework, or any type of work associated 
with the stage or performing. Ten points 
will allow a person to become a member 
of the International Thespian Society, an 
honorary organization for actors and 
actresses. 

Stan Minks and Judith McBride sponsor 
the group.

Debate Team 
gets ready 



Tech's enviable record at speech meets 
the last few years always has been won 
without the participation of a debate team. 
Soon that deficiency is to be remedied. A 
small, select group, encouraged by two 
coaches, has been studying this year's 
topic, criminal justice. Sessions of maga- 
zine reading and of observing other 
debate teams in action should get the Tech 
unit ready for active service by September, 
1977.

Pizza pie 
in the sky 
for XYZ 



The XYZ Club took a trip to the stars this 
year. The group actually visited the Broad 
Ripple High School Planetarium. 

The group sat in total darkness gazing 
up at the stars and constellations as a mys- 
terious voice from nowhere told how 
strange figures and stars related to Indian 
Folklore. 

In Indian Folklore they believed that a 
group of stars assembled in the shape of a 
bear signified a real bear that was flung 
there by an angry giant. 

Mrs. Madora Walker, sponsor; and the 
members of the club were fascinated with 
the major part that folklore has played in 
astronomy, a study related to math.

Students learn more about teaching 



Exploratory Teaching is a program 
designed to give students actual classroom 
experience as well as academic credit 
toward graduation. Nine of Tech's stu- 
dents are taking advantage of this class 
and are really enjoying it. Alan Ulsh is the 
only male exploratory teacher. 



The program is designed not only to 
encourage students to enter the teaching 
profession, but also to give students prevo- 
cation experiences to help them decide 
whether or not they have the abilities 
necessary to become successful teachers. 

The purpose of the Future Educators of 



America is to give students who want to go 
into teaching help in teacher relations, to 
show them better teaching methods and 
how to use those methods, and try to give 
them examples of a better teacher-student 
relationship. 

FEA is sponsored by Mrs. Joan Brown.

Prayer Circle starts day right 



Fun means 
Y-Teens 



Y-Teens is an organization of high 
school women that is affiliated with the 
Y.W.C.A. Its purpose is to provide educa- 
tion for young women on important issues 
that concern them, recreation, service pro- 
jects and just plain fun. 

Activities have included a first of the 
year wiener roast and a party, and swim- 
ming lessons at the Y.W.C.A. facilities. 
Members also helped decorate pumpkins 
for young children in the hospitals around 
the city. Bowling has been another recrea- 
tional activity of club members. 

Films and discussions have been some 
of the educational activities. Guest speak- 
ers on child abuse and self-defense were 
planned for the spring semester. 



DON'T READ THIS! 

Aha! Caught your attention, didn't we? 
And now that we have it, guess what is 
happening four days a week at 7:30 a.m. 
in Room 275. A prayer circle, that's right, 
a prayer circle. James Easterly, sponsor, 
who teaches physical sciences, is also 
interested in Bible sciences. 

The group meets school days except 
Tuesday for three specific things — pray- 
ers, fellowship, and Bible study. The goal 
of the Prayer Circle is to get to know Jesus 
Christ better, and to make Him known. 

Meetings open with prayer and singing, 
and close with prayer. On Monday the 
only activity is prayer. 

The group prays for one another, the 
faculty of Tech, the students and their par- 



ents. 

Wednesday the group studies various 
topics of the Bible. 

Thursday and Friday the members study 
a certain book of the Bible at home bring- 
ing into the group ideas to share what they 
have learned. 

Tuesday is "Evangelistic Day" members 
invite people to the Prayer Circle, so actu- 
ally Tuesday is the day for membership 
drive. 

There are no dues because there are no 
outside activities. Bibles and songbooks 
are provided by the sponsor. 

The Prayer Circle was founded three 
years ago with the permission of Mr. Wal- 
lace Porter, vice principal, as an extracurri- 
cular activity. 




DEBBIE AND RHONDA Calvert enjoy refreshments at 
the Prayer Circle Christmas party.

Brain Game 

different name 

but still the same 



October 1 6, 1 976 was the day when 
Tech and Scecina faced each other to bat- 
tle their wits. Channel 1 3 was the place 
and the event was the Brain Game. 

The Brain Game group practiced a few 
mornings every week with the assistance 
of the club sponsor, Wesley Murphy. The 
contestants would answer questions and 
study all different subjects to help prepare 
themselves for that special day. 

The group's efforts were all in vain 
though because Scecina won with a score 
of 58-48.

Junior Council begins spring planning 



Junior Council cut its membership from 
17 last year to 1 8 this year because it is 
said to be easier to work with a smaller 
group. They got started somewhat late 
due to a surprise blizzard that closed 
schools. When they got organized, they 
went straight ahead to make up for lost 
time. 

Headed by Ann McMillan and Mrs. Joy- 
ann Middlekauf, the group assisted with 



plans for the Junior-Senior Prom held this 
year at the Hyatt-Regency Hotel down- 
town on May 6. 

To raise money Juniors sold Reese Cups, 
a pleasant change from the caramel candy 
so familiar to supporters of Tech projects. 
Also, the group sold junior buttons which 
bore the proud slogan, "The Class of '78 
was meant to dominate." 

Of course, only juniors are members of 



the Junior Council, but not automatically. 
Candidates must qualify with a C average, 
the recommendation of the roll room 
teacher, and of classroom teachers. Candi- 
dates must not have a disciplinary record 
in the office. They are nominated by peti- 
tion and elected by the Junior Class. 

They planned a special party to mark 
the end of the school year.

Speech Team: dedicated, hardworking

Harris, Alfenia Martin, Michael Robylay. FIFTH ROW: Mrs. Alice C. Goodrum, sponsor; Kenneth J. Armstrong, 
Avery Maurice Johnson, Michael W. Greene, Dwight Woodson, John Smith II. 



The Tech Speech Team is a voluntary 
extracurricular group open to any Tech 
student. It takes dependability, self 
expression, self discipline, hard work and 
desire to be a member. These qualities 
must be emphasized greatly if one truly 
wants to become a top winner. Dedicated 
members of the team drag themselves out 
of bed early on Saturday mornings ten to 
twelve times a year in hopes of carrying 
home that almightly blue ribbon, the sym- 
bol of excellence. 

Categories include Dramatic, Humor- 
ous, Original Interpretation, Poetry, Origi- 
nal Oration. Also for those who think 
quickly there are Impromptu, girls and 
boys Extemporaneous and Radio Broad- 
casting. 

Speech meets are not all work and no 
play. As a matter of fact, they seem to 
provide an enjoyable emotional outlet for 
the participants. Speakers have a chance 
to meet and make friends with people 
from all over the state. Some 80 to 100 
students here at Tech are involved with the 
Speech Team yearly. 

Points earned in speech contests lead to 
a life-time membership in the National For- 
ensic League, an honor society for out- 
standing speakers.

Radio Club introduces the ham operator 



In this age of the crowded citizen band 
radio frequencies, there are still those 
radio users who are not plagued with this 
sort of problem. These are the licensed 
amateur "ham" radio operators. 

In order to receive an amateur license, 
the applicant must pass a written test 
along with a code key test. The written 



examination includes questions on elec- 
tronic theory and general radio knowl- 
edge. Speed and accurary of transmitting 
Morse Code are tested on the code key 
test. 

The Radio Club was formed to offer the 
pupil with an interest in this form of com- 
munication a means of acquiring the 



knowledge and practice needed to receive 
a license. It also offers the student the 
facilities and equipment to broadcast voice 
and code across the airwaves and allows 
the "ham" operator to venture miles away 
without ever leaving the seat of his chair. 



Chemistry 
Physics Club 
sets up radar 



During the spring you may have noticed 
some strange looking equipment out by 
the Oriental Street gate. You were actu- 
ally seeing the Chemistry-Physics Club at 
work. 

Through the year the club designed a 
system by which they could determine how 
fast cars driving down the street are going. 
In other words, they created a speed trap. 

Through the use of lasers, mirrors and a 
stopwatch, the group attempted to prove 
that a human holding a stopwatch record- 
ing speed, is accurate.

Hiking-Photo Clubs 
pull big switch 



This year the Photography Club and the Hiking Club have done 
something excitingly new. They have combined to form the Hiking- 
Photo Club under the sponsorship of Michael Slover. 

The club is a little larger than was anticipated, but this makes for 
a more active group. 

The groups trips range from a weekend in the middle of the 
woods with back packs, to an afternoon in a cave with a flashlight 
and hard hat, and no doubt there is always a camera or two at 
hand. 

The club's activities included ice skating, hiking, bicycle trips, 
photography projects, and just about anything a physically active 
and photo-oriented person would go for. 

So no matter where the club goes or what they do, variety in 
activities may tend to make them one of the more unique and inter- 
esting groups around.

Yearbook started early 



Once again amid interviews, photo schedules and deadlines, the 
yearbook staff combined their sincere efforts and got the yearbook 
that you are now holding completed in time. 

Dedicated staffers worked not only during class periods but also 
came a few Saturdays and on some school vacation days. 

Plans for this year's book started forming even before the school 
year began. Decisions on what the theme would be, what the cover 
should look like, and what clubs and classes are on which pages 
were decided by the second week in September. 

Under the direction of Bernice Jones all problems were faced 
and our goal, the 1 977 yearbook, was achieved.

all together 



It's 1 1 :00 and the newspaper staff must 
have the layout for the front page at the 
Print Shop in 30 minutes. But there is a 
four inch gap in the very middle of the 
page, the feature story needs a headline 
and the names of the people in a picture 
are unknown. 

But no one panics. The editor starts 
thinking of a headline, a reporter runs out 
to get a story to fill the gap and everyone 
near is asked, "Do you know who these 
people are?" 

With the assistance of Cecil Tresslar, the 
newspaper staff had a successful year des- 
pite their share of minor problems.

Chess Team "check" moves of progress 



Every Wednesday in Room 305, a 
group of about 30 to 40 guys (and one 
girl) met for a session of concentrated 
effort. It was the Chess Club, headed by 
John Kern. 

According to a first-hand account, being 
the only girl was very awkward at first. 
She reported that observers (male) were 
always watching her game, and if she 
made a bad move, she could hear the 
guys whispering to each other. 

Now they regard her as any other com- 
petitor to be check-mated. 

Participants win points for pairings and 
for tournament play.

Anthropology 



Anthropology is the study of man and 
his development. Many students on cam- 
pus find an interest in studying this area of 
science, and in so doing find their way to 
the Anthropology Club. This group tours 
different sites of exploration such as 
Tincher Site in Illinois, which is named for 
the club's sponsor, John Tincher; Mounds 
State Park, and Dickson Mounds Museum 
in Illinois, along with other spots through- 
out the state. The club has also heard 
many experts in the area of anthropology. 
A picture of this club can be found in the

Minds return 
to Math 



The minds of Tech students are being 
developed by the Math Department. First 
the department takes over where the jun- 
ior high school left off. Classes teach stu- 
dents 1+1=2. Then a x b = c in Alge- 
bra I. 

Advanced Classes concern triangles, 
and theorems. Algebra III and IV teach 
how to prove a x b = c and 1 + 1=2. 
Advanced Math educates students to 
graph sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, 
secant, and cosecant. The more ambitious 
person may take one of the new courses, 
Computer Math, Calculus, or Computer 
Laboratory. 




KATHY HONG, Mark Hill, and Willie Nelson listen closely in class. 




MICHELLE MAJORS demonstrates how a proof is written in Geometry. 



HAFIZE SHAH proves that calculus can be interesting. 




MRS. FRANCOISE MILLER, Bill Smith, Tom Darden, Joe Wyley, Marlon Harris, 
seated, Kathy Lane discuss Computer Math.

English Department silently progresses 



This year the English Department has 
added a class which gives a whole new 
concept in teaching, a class which com- 
bines three present classes to make a dif- 
ferent new one. This class combines litera- 
ture, history, and art, and forms a new 
class called Humanities. This class gives 
the students a chance to see how art may 
relate to literature, as they could not real- 



ize when the classes were separate. 

The class is for two credits and is two 
periods. The credits may be used in two of 
the three subjects, but may not be used in 
the same subject. 

Each year the English Department may 
not show any drastic changes, but changes 
little by little gradually to meet the needs 
of Tech students. 




The two pictures with the funny box in 
them, which look like speakers, are two- 
way radios. Indiana Bell Telephone Com- 
pany markets these boxes, used as class- 
room transmitters. A pupil, who can not 
come to school for a long period of time 
because of an illness or surgery uses this 
transmitter at home. The teacher goes to 
the English Office every day and trans- 
ports the companion box to class. The stu- 
dent listens and follows along with the tex- 
tbook and also participates in class. This is 
a good way to get a credit if the pupil must 
be out for a long period of time.

Careers, careers and more careers 



The Business Education Department has 
many advantages for any student. It pre- 
pares a student for a career and offers a 
variety of classes. It helps the pupil cope 
with the problems of his vocation, while 
building his vocabulary in this field. 

Seniors are offered classes in Intensive 



Office Laboratory, Distributive Education, 
Cooperative Office Education, and Cashi- 
ering, plus all other classes offered to 
other students. They must qualify to get 
into these clubs. 

Some other classes are General Busi- 
ness, Careers, Accounting, Data Process- 



ing, Typing, Business Law, Key Punch, and 
many others that have to do with a career 
in business. 

If a student can not decide what career 
is wanted, he can take several business 
courses and choose the most interesting 
ones.

Social Studies presents 
past, present, and future 



The Social Studies Department keeps 
students informed about events happening 
around the world. The variety of classes 
offered by this department proves that 
times are changing. Some of these classes 
are required by the state of Indiana, while 
others are for ambitious students to elect. 

Required courses are: U.S. History, U.S. 
Government, and Economics, for introduc- 



ing the problems of money as they touch 
both government and the individual per- 
son. 

Other courses offered are: World Civili- 
zation, Introduction to Social Studies, Psy- 
chology, Indiana History, World Geogra- 
phy, and Sociology. The more ambitious 
pupil may take Humanities, discussed on 
page 7 1 .

Art has many 
opportunities 



A student has many classes to choose 
from in the Art Department. Exploratory 
Art is for freshmen only. This class involves 
all types of art and gives the new student a 
chance to discover which art class he likes 
best. Craft Design is a class which involves 
using the hands with a variety of media. 
Jewelry and Metal Craft teaches the stu- 
dent how to make jewelry. Commercial Art 
is a special class in which the student 
designs record covers, book covers, and 
fashion display.

Stagecraft, Photography 



The Stagecraft Class may not be heard 
of very often but signs of their work are 
seen a lot. 

The Class' main purpose is to design 
sets for the school productions such as 
FLFFFF, the fall play, and their biggest job, 
the school musical. 

The Stagecraft Club picks up where the 
class lets off. Anything left unfinished on a 



stage set, the club finishes. 

Taking pictures, developing film, print- 
ing pictures, then displaying the final prod- 
uct is what the photography class is all 
about. 

Students have the opportunity to learn 
more about professional photography and 
the techniques that make photography 
work an exciting career.

Science Department moving forward 



The most unsanitary class at Tech is held 
first and second periods in Room 194. The 
Advanced Biology class and teacher, Gar- 
Ian Howard grow germs the first nine 
weeks of the first semester. 

The class is designed for students who 
want to go further into biology after Biol- 
ogy I and II. 

The first nine weeks are devoted to 
microbiology or bacteriology. The second 
nine weeks are given to histology. The 
opening half of the second semester is for 
embryology, and the last half — what we 
have been waiting for — comparative anat- 
omy. Part of this study is dissecting. 

Pure cultures, petrie dishes, and broths 



full of pathogenic, or harmful germs are 
all part of the scene in microbiology. The 
class studies bacteria and other micro- 
organisms by growing them. The pupils 
are given nine unknown bacteria, and Mr. 
Howard wants the pupils to identify them. 

By running tests, such as stains, motility 
slides, spore slides, amylase production 
tests, tests for the liberation of hydrogen, 
sulfide and others, pupils gather enough 
information to identify the germ. 

Pupils learn to make tasty broths and 
agars for the bacteria they grow. Students 
are also taught methods of sanitation, of 
course, although growths do become con- 
taminated. 



One broth is used to determine whether 
bacteria do or do not need oxygen to 
grow. Another g r oup of broths are of dif- 
ferent sugars. Ihey are used to determine 
the PH, or percentage of hydrogen ion of 
the bacterium. 

The class also learns about the families 
which different microorganisms belong to, 
if they are harmful or helpful to plants and 
animals including man, and how they can 
be controlled. 

Maybe those nine weeks are the busiest 
part of the class, but Advanced Biology is 
interesting. If you have just read some 
heavy words, take the class and find out 
what they mean.

Pants Factory 
teaches skills 
of production 



As a result of a summer workshop, Mrs. 
Carrol Rose came out with a study pro- 
gram which did away with most book 
reading. It was called Pants Factories. 

This was started in the early fall with her 
Career Clothing I class. Barely any of the 
students knew each other, but does an 
employer usually know the employee? 
First, they filled out applications which had 
names and telephone numbers for recom- 
mendations. A speaker from the Indiana 
Employment Service, Mrs. Ann Day, came 
to talk with the girls. Mrs. Day spoke to 
them about the qualifications for getting a 
job. Some were: good attendance, willing- 
ness to work and not waste time, and skills 
in the area of work. She also talked about 
the minimum wage and laws of employ- 
ment. 

After understanding employment, 
twelve people were chosen for the factory. 
Each factory had a president and a name. 
A few of the names were Famous Jeans, 




Plain Pants, Blue Jeans, and Campbell's 
Company. 

The companies had to figure the cost of 
equipment, and each person chose a style 
of pants. 

Then there were problems, and some 
people had to be laid off or fired. This 
showed the girls problems of the employ- 
ers as far as firing and hiring are con- 
cerned. 

Next, the girls had to figure out the 
labor cost for making jeans. They multi- 
plied hours worked times the minimum 
wage for the total labor cost for one pair 
of jeans. 

They kept records of all hours, produc- 
tion, and spending. 

They were graded on points in ten dif- 
ferent areas. A few of the higher points 
were: 

1 . Skills: sample (six pairs correctly 



Social Relations 
Care of Equipment 
The total possible was 310 points.

ROTC officers proud of achievements 



From June 27 to July 9, Army ROTC units from the 1 1 Indianap- 
olis high schools and some members from the Marine ROTC of 
Muncie, Southside went to Central Indiana JROTC Summer Camp 
Atterbury in Edinburg, Indiana. 

Approximately 200 cadets (50 female) went to camp to study 
marksmanship, patroling tactics, compass reading and other skills 
necessary for war games and actual combat. Everything was 
strictly army, from PT (physical training) to getting up at 0430 
hours. Five Tech cadets earned officer commissions from the Officer 
Candidate School (OCS) where NCO's (non-commission officers) 
go to become officers. The five from Tech were: C/CPT Darlene 
Woods, C/2LT William Vollmer, C/2LT Mike Pipes, C/2LT Ezra 
Davis. 

Cadets that successfully complete the two weeks are advanced 
one rank. Battlefield promotions were earned C/2LT Duane Wil- 
liams and C/2LT Derrick Jones. 

The cost was $30.00 for the two weeks which included meals, 
ammo, shelter, insurance — everything except personal supplies 
and spending money at NCO Club, PX and Big Roby's Concession 
Stand.

Precision, perfection, and expertise. 
That is the goal of the IDR drill team. All 
these qualities are definite requirements 
for the team since they must go by the 
book, FM 22-5 (field manual) none of the 
fancy drill that the boys and girls Exhib- 
ition Drill Teams perform in their routine. 

The team is commanded by C/2LT Wil- 
liam Vollmer an OCS (Officer Candidate 



School) graduate. Vollmer, a junior here at 
Tech, has had command of the team since 
March, 1 976. The team has been impor- 
tant to him since his freshman year. The 
teams XO (executive officer), the second in 
command, is C/SFC Denny Holt, a sopho- 
more. Holt has been on the team since his 
freshman year. 

Last year was the first time the IDR went 



out for competition. They have been here 
for five years. No awards have been won 
yet, but a lot of effort and team work have 
been put forth on all levels. 

The team practices all the school year 
for two sets of drill meets, one in the fall 
and one in the spring. Other special events 
are scheduled for Armed Forces Day and 
Annual Federal Inspection.

"Lookin' good" in student polls 



It was Election Day at Tech for those 1 4 
years or older. The young people finally 
got their chance to voice an opinion in 
American politics by pulling the lever 
under the name of the candidate of their 
choice. This election took place in the Barn 
which is on the east side of the campus by 
the Woodruff gate. There were slight simi- 
larities between this mock election and the 
real election as they both took place on 
Tuesday, November 2, and Jimmy Carter 
was the president-elect in both. We have 
the Tech 300 to thank for this opportunity 
of voting before we are 1 8 years old and 
just giving us a chance to see who the stu- 
dent body prefers for president.

House is home 
for many 



The purpose of the House Plan is to bring students closer 
together. It is done by choosing at random the incoming freshmen 
who will participate and placing them in the House Plan. Some 700 
pupils now are in the House, and they have 14 regular teachers, 
one dean, one counselor and the head, Mr. Miner. 

The group assets are that there are fewer drop-outs and better 
attendance than in regular classes, according to Mr. Miner. Attend- 
ance helps student grades and achievement. Parents feel that this 
organization benefits their children in their need to communicate 
with teachers and counselors. The plan has been in practice for five 
years. 




Tech's not gettin' older, it's gettin' better 




THE GIRLS' NEW GYM— lookin' good! 



During the last 1 8 months many 
changes have been underway on Tech's 
campus. These include a new gym for the 
girls and a new swimming pool. The old 
Boys' Gym has been remodeled. 

The swimming pool and Girls' Gym are 
modern and artistic. The racing lanes of 
the pool measure 75 feet long and 45 feet 
wide. The diving tank is 36 feet long and 
36 feet wide. The pool has a high dive and 
a low dive, both springboards. The archi- 
tect's work is of the latest design. 

The Boys' Gym has been restored. The 
floor has a new surface. The old fold-up 
bleachers are completely redone. The area 
which once was the stage has been 
enlarged and converted into a wrestling 
room for practice and for meets.

Art, music, dance enliven language scene 




"ALL IS NOT GOLD that glitters," proclaims Carla 
Dickson, displaying decoration for her Spanish class- 
room. 



The Foreign Language Department 
ended last year and started this one with 
the visit of Vicki Carson, Bill Cox and Janet 
Deatrick for an eight-week stay in France. 
The three, now seniors, were juniors and 
French students — the first qualifications 
needed to apply for the IUPUI Honors 
Abroad Program, which is open in the four 
languages taught at Tech. 

Six steps are entailed in getting the 
appointment. The applicant must write a 
letter stating his reasons for applying, he 
must pay a fee to be tested in comprehen- 
sion of the chosen language. Then the 
applicant must request numerous recom- 
mendations. He gets a personal interview 
with a native speaker of the chosen lan- 
guage to determine whether he can repre- 
ent his country, himself, and his school in 
3 foreign country. 

Vicki, Bill and Janet were able to do 
mis. They had an exciting summer speak- 
ing and listening to French and touring the 
country. 

Members of the department, headed by 
Dan Stanley, express pride in the accom- 
plishment of the three who were honored 
upon their return by a reception and pro-

STARKSY AND HUTCH provided inspira- 
tion for the French Club. The Latin Club 
prepared a heart rending piece entitled

Proceeds from the show were used to 
help honor pupils with their expense 
abroad.

Language clubs; cooks, artists, and . 



Who says that only the French can 
cook? Get together a French Club, French 
recipes and your taste buds — two out of 
the three are American — and prove to 
yourself that French recipes American style 
are just as good as the real thing! 

Well, Tech did just that the last Monday 
in October. A French Tasting Bee was held 
in Stuart Tower. Members of the French 



Club and Mrs. Maria Lagadon, sponsor, 
made the scrumptious delicacies following 
French recipes. 

For 75 cents, pupils and teachers 
enjoyed French foods such as quiche Lor- 
raine, crepes, pain Francois, eclairs and 
pate. Non-believers went away convinced, 
and many went back for more. 



The German Club has more to offer to 
Tech students than they realize. The Ger- 
man Club consists mostly of German stu- 
dents, but anyone can join. The club 
wasted no time at all getting reorganized 
this year: they met the second week of 
school. The club, which is headed by Paula 
Barbour, planned field trips for the year. 
The first trip was to Columbus, Ohio, for 
two days midway through November.

Just plain fun and togetherness 



If you happened to be around Room 
335 in Stuart Hall anytime this year, you 
probably noticed the room was ever- 
increasing in beauty. This was a year-long 
effort by the Spanish Club to beautify their 
room. Sheila Sullivan, sponsor of the club 
and the teacher who is in the room most, 
got the class into the idea. The club, 
together, made one large wall hanging 
and each member put something on it to 



represent himself. Also some of the mem- 
bers made ornaments to decorate the 
room. 

This was not the kick-off though. The 
Spanish Club started the year with a Taco 
Dinner at Mrs. Maria Lagadon's house fol- 
lowed by a visit to the Ballet Folklorico at 
Clowes Hall on Thursday October 21, 
1976. 

In FLFFF, whose theme was A DAY IN 



THE LIFE OF TELEVISION, the Spanish 
Club did "The Price is Right". The club also 
took part in the International Dinner, 
November 1 3. Plans are under way for a 
ten-day trip to Mexico this summer. 

As a fund raiser, aside from Foreign 
Language Fun for Flight Fare, the Spanish 
Club sold suckers and bubblegum — a

late bars, but bad competitive pressure.

Industrial interested individuals in ICT 



What, a UFO? No the ICT which stands 
for Industrial Cooperative Training. It con- 
sists of twenty-nine young men at least 1 6 
years of age and in their junior or senior 
year of high school. 

It began before the present sponsor, 
Ernest Holmes, joined the staff in 1 967, as 
assistant coordinator. Some of the occupa- 
tions included are Auto Body, Auto 
Mechanics, Carpentry, Electrical Repair, 
Electronics Motor Training, and Pipe Fit- 
ting. 

The participants in ICT work three hours 
in school every day, and after school they 
work part time. They receive a grade in 
class; and a grade in on-the-job training. 
They receive two credits. Some of the jobs 
at which they work are at Naval Avionics, 
Community Hospital, Haag's Warehouse, 
Indianapolis Rubber Company, and many 
others. The hourly wage ranges from 
$2.00 to $3.50. The main purpose of the 
program is to receive training on the job. 

Mr. Holmes mentions that the applicant 
must have had two years of industrial 
training, and the main requirements which 
he looks forward to are average grades 
and good attendance.

DAVID MIMS etches a blueprint for the CANNON. 



The Printing Department is unique. The 
big machines are similar to those machines 
the INDIANAPOLIS STAR uses downtown. 
Many are the same machines. Some are: 
Vandercook Proof Press, Michle Offset 
Press, Seybold Citation Paper Cutter, 
Original Heidelburg Press, and Ludlow 
Linotype Headsetter. 

One part of the department teaches stu- 
dents to print the school newspaper, the 
ARSENAL CANNON, with all the big 
machines. 

The second part teaches students to be 
professional printers, using all the up-to- 
date equipment. 

This part shows the correct way to hand- 
set type, return it to the proper case, take 
proofs, read the proofs, and print the cop- 
ies needed.

Auto Mechanics One for the road 



The Auto Mechanics Department is a 
continually busy place with students inter- 
ested in their work. This vocation is a fine 
one as there are a lot of automobiles out 
on the road breaking down every day. 

The list of repairs ranges from bad dis- 
tributor caps to tune-ups with an occa- 
sional thrown rod. Repairs for all these are 
taught in the Auto Mechanics Department. 

Engine Systems I and II teaches the bas- 
ics; III and IV handles more complicated 
repairs. 

Auto Mechanics is not only for the guys; 
Tech now has a powder-puff course for 
interested young ladies. 

There is a lot of business out there. Go 
get it, auto mechanics majors.

Somewhere you have to draw the line 



The Tech Drafting Department students 
are developing houses, architects have 
never dreamed of. The floor plans are uni- 
que. The dreams of a student's house are 
going onto paper and becoming a reality 



for a few moments. 

Drafting involves many skills. Some of 
these skills are: reading blue prints, know- 
ing how to recognize the symbols, includ- 
ing those for a door, or bathroom facili- 



ties, and how to draw the footage of a 
wall. 

There are many tools in drafting. The T 
square, triangle, and rulers for drawing 
lines are a few. 





A BUSY DRAFTSMAN puts on the final touch. 



FOR PERFECTION, David Price erases a line.

Electronics 
a shocking 
experience 



Electronics is one of the fastest growing 
fields of today which is drawing more and 
more interest. Electronics is one of four 
fields offered by Tech in the Electrical 
Trades Department. Other courses include 
radio and television, air conditioning, and 
heating and refrigeration. 

A student may be trained at Tech for an 
electrical trades job after high school. In a 
field such as electronics a student may 
have to go through college for further 
training.

Hopeful chefs 
cooking up 
tasty future 



MELISSA McDAY and Judy Smith remove some tea 
cookies from the rack, sweet and hot. 



Going to be a bachelor for awhile after 
school? Then take a cooking class. First the 
pupil signs up for Foods I and II. 

Going to seek a career in food prepara- 
tion? Then the pupil may sign up for Com- 
mercial Foods I and II in the Career Center. 
After all this training, he may take 
Advanced Commercial Foods. 

Such training might begin a wonderful 
career in foods. A chef might start this 
way, continuing after high school in a 
vocational school. Some graduates may 
become restaurant managers. 

Food is a major factor of the American 
Way, and taking classes in the foods area 
might make a guy (or girl) a pretty good 
cook.

Put down the books, pick up the tools 




Metal Trades is a very interesting field 
that allows the student to put away the 
books and be creative with his hands and 
bring out his hidden talents. 

Metal Trades is a three period, two 
credit class offered both semesters. It 
includes pattern making, foundry, sheet 
metal and welding. Last year Metal Trades 
made the giant metal snowmen on our 
downtown Circle. This is just one of many 
projects done by the metal tradesmen of 
Tech.

Building Trades prosper 



The Building Trades Department of the 
Career Center develops students who are 
interested in the art of building structures. 
Small barns, dog houses, and tables, such 
as end tables are built in the classroom. 
Courses teach the student some carpentry 
and masonry work; also a person might 



build a house some day, the way some stu- 
dents built the house on Michigan Street a 
few years ago. This is another one of the 
Career Center's fine departments which 
help make students from Tech prosperous 
men.

Track Team has right ingredients for 1 976 



When the smell of track season is in the 
air, Tech becomes the most heard and 
talked about team in the city. Other high 
schools in the city know that this is the 
team for whom they must once again, lay 
all their talent, knowledge, and strategy 
on the line. This year their strategy failed. 
Tech had all the right ingredients for the 
1976 city championship. The Titans put all 
of the talent they had forward in one tight 
bundle, but when the bundle became too 
tight with talent, they let it go. The Titans 
were on the loose again! Tech dominated 
the season's City's Best. 

There were Madison Miller, 1 00 yd. 
dash 9.8; Madison Miller, 220 yd. dash 
21.9; Nicky Edwards, 880 yd. dash 1.56; 
Jerry Hill, high hurdles 13.8; Jerry Hill low 
hurdles 19.2; John Brinkley, high jump 6- 
6; Kenny Lee, shot-put 57-1 1; 880 relay 
1 :29.7; mile relay 3:26. All of these were 
the best in the city. 

Although the Tech Track Team was num- 
ber one in the city, Tech was runner-up 
next to North Central, in the Sectional, 
Regional and State competition. North 
Central dominated the county polls. North 
Central also happens to be one of Tech's 
biggest rivals every year. This time they 



slipped past the sharp blade of the Titan's 
sword. 

The Tech Track Team, win or lose, is a 
respected team, known by every coach 



and school in the state of Indiana. Beating 
the Titans is not an easy job, and this is 
what gave them the position they strive to 
keep each year. 




1 ,2,3,4, that's how these Titans score.

Reserves undefeated 



The Tech Reserve Track Team shifted to 
fourth gear, and really turned the power 
on as they went on a winning streak from 
the beginning of the track season to the 
very end. 

One surprising win came against the 
Attucks Tigers, when the Titans defeated 
them 108-1. 

There is not any kind of city tournament 



for the reserve team, but they are active in 
any kind of tournament given by any high 
schools throughout the city. 

The reserve team was made up mostly 
of juniors and sophomores last season, 
who will be back hopefully to carry on 
their winning streak as most of them 
advance to the varsity team.

Tech Frosh take city crown 



Tech's Freshman Track Team began 
their first year at Tech on the right foot, as 
they defended their City Championship 
Crown. 

The freshmen of the 1976 season put 
away all of their school troubles that 
always seem to pile up for the beginning 
student, and established an undefeated 
season. 



Together Coach Don Robinson and 
Assistant Coach John Hall worked 
together to produce freshman record- 
breaking trackmen, whose attitudes and 
team spirit made them a winning team. 
These trackmen have returned this season, 
but not as freshmen. As sophomores this 
spirited team has added their talent to the 
rest of Tech's Reserve and Varsity teams.

Tech girls have winning track season 1 976 



The Girls Track Team of 1976 was a 
team of speed, strong relays and quick 
aggressive freshmen. The girls defeated all 
of their regular season opponents except 
for the defending state champions from 
Washington High School. 

The team did not expect to win the City 
crown, yet they went on to become Sec- 
tional Champions, take second place in 
the Regionals and eighth in the State com- 
petition. The girls also made their season 
great by defeating Marshall High School 
for the first time in two years. 

The Girls Track Team lost four senior 
members last season, but this loss will not 
weaken their team because of the strong 
freshmen who will be returning this sea- 
son, according to Coach Sue Jahnke.

Varsity Baseball Team has 14-13 season 



If the game were started 30 minutes late 
because one umpire hadn't arrived yet, 
and then he had to leave early, you would 
have troubles too. This was the situation as 
the Tech Varsity baseball team played in 
the first round opener of the City Champi- 
onship games. Tech defeated their first 
round opponent, Northwest, 2-1 . The next 
round for the Titans was against defending 
champs, Chatard. Champs they stayed, as 
they defeated Tech 10-2. Tech rounded 
out their season with 1 4 wins and 1 3 
losses. 

To Ivan Mooreman, coach of the varsity 
squad, the season was an enjoyable one. 
He also stated that the attitudes of the 
players were very good; they all seemed 
to have a lot of fun, and a game of fun 
makes a pleasing time for all. 

The team played 27 games — the most 
games they have ever played in one sea- 
son. 

In the first game of the Sectional, North 
Central defeated Tech 8-4 in one extra 
inning. In the bottom of the seventh with 
North Central ahead by 2, Titan Roger 
Rebennack blasted a home run with one 
on to tie the game at 4. In the overtime 
inning North Central scored 4 runs with 2 
outs accompanied by 5 Tech errors.

Reserves find winning season 



Tech's reserve baseballers came up with 
a 10-9 record, following a couple of bad 
seasons. 

After losing the first four games of the 
season, the Titans came back strong by 
winning five of the last six games. 

The coach of the Tech Reserve Baseball 
Team, Dave George, commented that 
inexperience was a team problem. He 
sometimes started as many as six fresh- 
men, but they compensated for inexperi- 
ence by working very hard. He also 
pointed out that this was one of the best 
teams of reserves he had coached at Tech 
in a long time. 

Some baseball action and personalities 
included a key pitching performance by 
Robert Myers, who pitched a no-hit game 
against Arlington. Ron May led Tech in 
pitching. A strong hitting attack was led by 
Terrance Chaney, Robert Bruce, Marlon 
Harris and Robert Goode, who pushed the 
Titans above .500. 




SURE OF A GOOD HIT is Bobby Bruce.

son with five wins and five losses and 
duplicated their season of 1 974. 

The Titans were put to the test as they 
competed against some of the toughest 
teams in the city. The team kept their 
heads above water and pushed on to 
prove that hard nose football is Tech's 
game. 

Even though Tech is not victorious in the 
ratings of the football polls, we are recog- 
nized for having one of the most outstand- 
ing backfields in the city. 

Tech will be losing sixteen fine players 
this year, all who are graduating seniors. 
These seniors have contributed much of 
themselves and their energy for our team. 
Although the football team has lost some 
good talent, this loss will not cripple the 
rest of the squad. This season we have 
more pro career hopefuls who will spread 
their talent all over the field to build a 
green and white path to Titan victory for 
1977.

Reserve Football Team has tough season 



The 1 976 Reserve Football season was 
filled with bad luck for our Titan team. The 
Reserves ended their season with a 2-5 
record with one tie against Chatard. 

The team's first victory came against 
Marshall High School, in which the Tech 
Titans blew away the Patriots 30-0. 

Although bad luck gave the Titan team 
a rough time, we all hope that the Reserve 
Football Team in the fall of '77 will be 
more mature and beat the record of the 
1 976 season. 

The Reserve Team received a new 
coaching staff last fall, John Hurrle, coach, 
and assistant coach, Al Moore. Coach 
Hurrle who had been, through recent 
years, coach of the Freshman Football 
Team, replaced Melvin Bowers, who 
resigned as coach of the Reserve Team, 
and ended his teaching career at Tech.

Frosh footballers, promising athletes 



The Freshman Football team proved 
that they were ready for participation in 
high school athletics this season by earn- 
ing themselves a 4-5 season. For some of 
the freshmen on the team this was the first 
sport they had ever participated in on the 
high school level. Since high school sports 
are more competitive and the coaches 
demand more from the athletes, some of 
the freshmen had to get used to the 
changes. 

The freshmen started their season by 
winning the first few games. A few people 
thought that the Tech Freshman Football 
Team was on its way to a victorious sea- 
son, but as it sometimes goes when you 
have your hopes too high, things don't 
always go the way you had expected them 
to. Halfway through the season, and unde- 
feated at that time, the team lost to Cha- 
tard. There were other wins after this 
defeat, but following close behind was 
more defeat, tagging behind like a six- 
year-old child who wants to follow the 
teen-agers. Win or lose, Tech's Freshmen 
Footballers actually did end their season 
with a seal of approval — good promising 
athletes.

Freshman Cross Country Team forfeits two 



The Tech Freshman Cross Country Team 
ended their season with a 6-2 record. The 
team gave away the chance for an unde- 
feated season when Tech was forced to 
forfeit meets to Southport and Perry 
Meridian high schools. 

The forfeit is a rule in the simple ideal of 
fair play. When a team does not have 
enough runners for a meet, they must turn 
the meet over to the opponents, giving 
them the victory for that meet. This was the 
situation when Tech met Southport and 
Perry Meridian. 

Although the Titans gave away two eas- 
ily won victories, the forfeits did not turn 
out to be a depressive influence for the 
team. They won the rest of their meets. 

The freshmen placed 4th in the Wash- 
ington Invitational and 7th in the Colum- 
bus Invitational.

The 1976-77 Varsity Wrestling Team 
closed the season with a 7-5 record. 

During the season of 1 975-76, they had 
captured the state title with the very impor- 
tant aid of Andrew Fowlkes, DeWayne 
Engram and Eugene McGuire. Fowlkes, 
who placed 4th in the state, returned to 
the state finals this year, but unluckily was 
defeated in the first round at Southport 
February 26. 

Before the state competition, Fowlkes 
had made other exciting triumphs. He cap- 
tured the city title, placed first in the Sec- 
tional, and Regional and second in the 
Semi-State. For this graduating senior, it's 
been quite a season!

The year of 1 976-77 was a season of 
excitement for the varsity wrestling hope- 
fuls as they ended their season with a 7-2 
record and a 3rd place in the city tourna- 
ment. 

A lot of future talent was unchained 
during the wrestling season which may 
have some effect on the varsity team for 
next year. 

City champions for the Reserves this 
season were Gerald Fowlkes and Antonio 
Martin. Placing second were wrestlers, 
Dwayne Craig, Gene Brown, and James 
Pollard.

Freshmen wrestlers are aggressive 



The fall season was a very decision 
making part of the beginning year for 
some freshmen here at Tech as they tried 
their hands at wrestling. 

Some freshmen found out that the sport 
was a trying experience for them. But they 
discovered that wrestling can also be a 
challenge when they were taught ways of 
conquering their opponents. 

The Freshman Wrestling Team ended 
their season with a 5-1 record and placed 
5th in the City Tourney. Earning an individ- 
ual championship was Ray Akers, and 
placing second was Dean Kelso.

Volleyball Team has good potential 





Tech's Girls' Volleyball Team lost only 
two players from their 1 975 season, leav- 
ing Tech with a 1976 veteran team. The 
girls had a lot of talent, experience and 
skill, but they just did not give a 100% 
effort. 

Competition came against Marshall, to 
whom we lost in both rounds of action. The 
team got back on the track when they 
defeated Howe, at that time rated number 
2 in the city polls. 

In the sectional competition all of the 
girls were ready physically, but not men- 
tally, and that's where the problem struck 
in the second round against Perry Merid- 
ian High School who was undefeated. 

Returning talented players for next sea- 
son's team will be: Leslie Green, Ada 
Johnson, and Cynthia Graham. 

The team has also lost one player, 
Teresa Clemmons, and two players are to 
graduate, Tonya Jackson and Loletta 
Brinkley.

First year for Tech golf invitational 



Tech's Golf Team had their first Invita- 
tional Tournament last season at Eagle 
Creek Park for all city teams, in which Tech 
received third place. 

The number one man for Tech's Golf 
Team was Brad McCall for the 1976 sea- 
son. Other top players were number two 
man Larry Johnson, number three man 





Jack Gross, number four man Dave Lewis 
and number five man Lonny Hockmann. 

The Team was a good golf team with 
lots of potential and was better than the 
team from the season before. Five juniors 
hopefully return this season to lead the 
golf team to a victorious season.

Tech girls stronger and more confident 



After making it to the Girls' State Bas- 
ketball Finals last season, the girls were 
red hot for the 1 976-77 season, capturing 
their second straight Sectional and 
Regional titles. 

Last season the girls had a few losses 
during regular season play but soon 
became notoriously dangerous after 
knocking off highly rated Ladywood — 



undefeated until that time, and riding high 
on a cloud. 

The girls won the hearts of many this 
season as they were the favorite to win the 
state championship. But in the final round 
of the Semistate final, the Titans were 
bumped off by the Mount Vernon Marau- 
ders — Tech's only loss for the season. 

In the first round action of the Regional 



Tourney, the Titans were up against fast- 
breaking Warren Central which prides 
itself on man-to-man defense. But Tech 
was stronger and more confident. In the 
final game against Carmel in the Regional, 
the Titanettes really had their work cut out 
for them. But they kept cool heads and 
defeated Carmel 50-41 when the oppo- 
nent began to fold in the third quarter.

Tech blasts Rockets, Hornets get stung 



In the Sectional Tournament Tech 
handed Ripple their third defeat by the 
Titans (59-53) in one season. The Tech 
team also gained revenge on the Rockets 
for last season's Sectional loss. 

In the next round of action in the Sec- 
tional Tech was upset by the underdog, 
the Arlington Knights 70-69 on a bad case 
of fouls with a few seconds left in the 
game. 



The Tech varsity basketball team took 
the blast out of the Broad Ripple Rockets 
and the sting out of the Howe Hornets, as 
the big green machine ended their season 
with a (19-5) record, and the city champi- 
onship for 1 977. The championship was 
the third for the Titans since 1 974. 

The excitement really crept in when the 
Titans took their revenge on the Rockets 
for a big upset from last season when the

Rockets eliminated the Titans from the city 
championship semi-finals and again in reg- 
ular season play. This time Tech turned the 
wheels and eliminated Ripple from the 
1977 city championship semi-finals 66-63. 
The Titans then shielded themselves from 
the sting of the Howe Hornets, who earlier 
in regular season play had defeated them 
75-73. 

The Titans force held strong and the 
Hornets quickly broke down to nothing but 
harmless bumble bees. With one big stump 
the Titans smashed the Hornets and their 
13-0 record 79-63. The Tech Titans took 
the city crown that was so eagerly wanted 
by Howe.

the city championship. 

The Reserves followed close behind the 
varsity this season as they defeated Wash- 
ington 52-37 in the finals of the Reserve

FRESHMAN BASKETBALL TEAM— FRONT ROW: Troy Oberley, Chris Hamilton, 
Gerald Smith, Brian Johnson, Alston Lockett, Richard Briles, manager. SECOND 
ROW: Fred Hamilton, Phillip Gross, Mike Cushenberry, Mark Combs. THIRD ROW: 



Howard Catt, athletic director; Jerrard Lorick, Vincent Twimen, Mark Cheryl, Greg 
Mason, Tim Reed, Darryl Swanigan, David Price, Dave George, coach. 



Freshmen finish in mixed figures 



The 1 976-77 Freshman Basketball Team 
ended their season with a 1 5-3 record. 

At the beginning of the season the 
freshmen had a bit of the starting-season 
jitters when they were defeated by Wood- 
view 47-49. It was the first game of the 
season. But getting in tune did not take 
long for the new team. They just washed 
away the butterflies and shifted into vic- 
tory gear, and headed on their way. 

From the talent shown by these fresh- 
men, the future reserve and varsity should 
have no problems finding players.

Cheerleaders moving for school spirit 



Who is full of yells and great school 
spirit? Who supports our basketball and 
football teams? The Cheerleaders. They 
are at every game giving our teams their 
fullest support. They cheer when they get 
there until the minute they leave. 

In trying out for the Cheerleading 
squads a girl or a guy is required to have 



an original cheer. After all interested indi- 
viduals have tried out, a selected commit- 
tee of teachers and students selects the 
new cheerleaders. The six who make up 
each of three squads are always reminded 
of how they appear before the crowd as 
they will receive criticism on what they do. 
The squads work along the same line as 



the athletic department with a Freshman, 
Reserve, and Varsity squad cheering 
respectively. This year's varsity squad will 
lose four seniors: Alex Hong, Gina Foster, 
Jaye Marcum, and Denise Browning. Three 
of these four have been on the varsity 
squad for three years. 





FRESHMAN CHEERLEADERS: Trade Shiniman, Shirley Williams, Linda Parish, Carol James, 
Melinda King. TOP: Rhonda Hale. 



RESERVE CHEERLEADERS — BOTTOM: Debbie Adam, Kathy Hong, Trina Beck. MIDDLE: Yvette 
Grant, Tammy Williams. TOP: Lavette Hill. 



VARSITY CHEERLEADERS— BOTTOM: Denise Browning. LOWER

Foster. TOP: Sherry Noerr.

Four years come .and go. As freshmen 
wejoqkjjp to the Seniors. As sophomores, 
, * we have% gained* more/ confidence and are 
^tookirig toward the future. When the junior 
; >\year rolls around, am we can think about is 
next yeat,' fcyJvds Seniors, we have 
achieved. It is* then that we realize what 
we have dope and what^weAan do. This 
year is the turning point in our lives. The 
future is ready for us; we must make it.

Many things take place for us to remem- 
ber; electing Senior Council, Homecoming, 
tug-o-war, Sadie Hawkins, and the prom. 
But the most important event of the year is 
graduation, the moment when the class 
president leads the entire senior class in 
the tassel ceremony. This is the moment 
when it is too late to turn back. We are 
Tech graduates.

Office of The Principal 



October 6, 1976 



WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A PRINCIPAL 



In doing whatever it is that a principal does, I feel that 
he must keep in mind the following concepts: 

"The elements of trust and faith in the abilities of others 
are most important: trust and faith in the abilities of class- 
room teachers, and the custodial, cafeteria, clerical, 
administrative, and supportive staffs -- to fulfill their 
respective jobs within the schoolhouse setting. 

"You must have confidence in students and their desire 
and ability to achieve an education. The school does not 
co-exist with students — the school exists for the students." 



Respectfully, 



RR/gr

Teachers must work hard to fulfill duty 



Each citizen must discover his own 
potential and try for self fulfillment. He 
must confront prejudice and live with a fair 
concern for others. 

Gaining a new concept of himself, the 
slum child can overcome his deprivation. 
Freed of defeatism and bitterness, the 
black pupil can avail himself of new 
opportunity. Aware of the enormous possi- 
bilities of human personality, the handi- 



capped can expand his limitations. Recog- 
nizing society's need for wholesome lead- 
ership, the young rebel can channel his 
independence. Maintaining his individual- 
ity, the gifted can, in turn bestow his gifts. 

Youth needs ideals without hypocrisy; 
criticism without loss of faith; devotion to 
country without militant nationalism; 
respect for work without sacrifice of the 
joy of living. 



It is in these areas that a teacher tries to 
help young people explore through the 
process of education. The task is difficult 
but full of hope. 

Young people repay honesty with confi- 
dence; responsibility with self-discipline; 
respect with respect. It is when they react 
courageously to the search for a better life 
that I am glad I am a teacher. 






JOHN MINER, in his classy attire, takes a minute to 
relax from his daily work. 



ROBERT FORD is ready for a rainy day with his 
windshield wiper equipped glasses. 



JAMES TAFLINGER models his deputy sheriff's uni- 
form that he wears as a bailiff in court.

The National Bellamy Award 



honoring Tech since 1 947 



The National Bellamy Flag Award was 
established in 1942 under the leadership 
of an indefatigable lady Dr. Margarette S. 
Miller, biographer of Francis Bellamy, 
author of the Pledge of Allegiance to the 
Flag of the United States of America. Mr. 
Bellamy wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 
1892 for the National Public School Cele- 
bration of Columbus Day, commemorating 
the four-hundredth anniversary of the dis- 
covery of America. 

The purpose of the Bellamy Award is 
two-fold: to give recognition to the author 



and perpetuate his memory and to encour- 
age the teaching of patriotism and good 
citizenship in the schools of our nation. 

Throughout the history of our country 
the schools have performed a real and 
splendid job in fostering the students a 
realization of the advantages and respon- 
sibilities that go with Americans citizen- 
ship. 

Each year since 1942 an outstanding 
secondary school in a different state has 
been elected to receive this coveted award 
on or near Columbus Day. Presentation of 



the Flag flown over the Nation's Capital 
on May 1 8, birthday of Francis Bellamy, is 
made by Dr. Miller to the chosen school. 

Tech received this award in 1 947 and 
now holds the longest record of attend- 
ance at Bellamy Award presentations 
throughout the country. 

It is up to all true Titans to maintain in 
their daily endeavors the spirit of this 
award. May we all be inspired to redouble 
our efforts, not only to maintain our Ameri- 
can way of life, but to extend it as well.

FRANCIS BELLAMY - 1802 



ORIGINAL PLEDGE in 1 892 



"I know three things must always be 

To keep a nation strong and free. 

One is a hearthstone bright and clear 

With busy, happy, loved ones near. 

One is a ready heart and hand 

To love and serve and keep the land. 

One is a worn and beaten way 

To where the people go to pray. 

So long as these are kept alive 

Nation and People will survive. 

God, keep then always, everywhere: 

The Hearth, the Flag, the Place of Prayer." 




FRANCIS BELLAMY, author of the pledge

Tech 300 draws national recognition 



As the Tech 300 program moves 
through its third year, new and exciting 
things are happening. The educational 
experiment, originally funded by Lilly 
Endowment, Inc. is gaining nation-wide 
attention. 

During a recent evaluation, Dr. Richard 
Kunkel, Chairman of the Department of 
Education, St. Louis University, called the 
program "one of the most exciting, chal- 
lenging efforts in urban education today." 

Staff personnel operate within four 
work specialty areas: (1 ) youth worker; (2) 
supportive educator; (3) programmatic 
coordinator; and (4) social service person. 
Assignment of specific duties of project 
personnel is accomplished through the use 
of conventional horizontal programs. The 
scheduled work day extends from 8:00 
A.M. through 5:00 P.M., Monday through 
Friday. In addition, personnel are involved 
in many student activities after school, eve- 
nings and weekends. 

Staff personnel are involved in an inten- 
sive tutorial effort both during and after 
class with emphasis on the basic areas of 
mathematics, reading and citizenship. In 
addition, much informal counseling is done 
during cafeteria and hall duty assignments 
and through supervision of student activi- 
ties including educational field trips, out- 
door activities, cultural events, self-devel- 
opment projects, and intramural athletics.

Alumni never leave Tech 



Consisting of 80,000 members but only 
1 5,000 current addresses, the Tech Alumni 
Association has gone through some very 
heavy reorganization. When the associa- 
tion started, it consisted of few members. 
This number grew over the years until 
Tech's campus became too small to handle 
it. In 1972, a lady by the name of Mary 
Churchman contacted the association 
about having a 10-year reunion. Of the 
540 graduated in '62, only 6 current 
addresses were on file. 

Mrs. Churchman contacted the associa- 
tion about starting a committee to locate 
its members by 1 974. Some 80,000 per- 
sons had to be located, but because of the 



vast number and small staff, only 1 5,000 
of the addresses are accurate. In May of 
1973, Mrs. Churchman was asked to be 
president of the association. She accepted 
and as her right hand she appointed Mrs. 
Susan Lebo. 

Since 1975, Mrs. Lebo has been presi- 
dent. Under these two ladies the associa- 
tion has accomplished a lot of things. 
Aside from bringing the membership back 
up, reorganizing the files, getting commit- 
tees started, starting new projects, the 
association has done something more 
spectacular. Because of its size and the 
need for a more adult atmosphere, the 
association moved off Tech campus and 



now is in the process of incorporating. 

As project for the year, the association 
is starting a fund to renovate the West Res- 
idence. The yearly scholarship will be 
increased from its 30-year run of $200 to 
possibly $750. 

In the words of Mrs. Mary Riner Church- 
man, class of '62, president 73-75, Tech's 
association is a group of people who care 
about Tech, who recognize what a good 
education you get at Tech. The association 
gives Techites the opportunity to keep in 
contact and see the people they once 
knew so well.

PTA concern: 
student needs 



The PTA at Tech works diligently to sup- 
port Tech young people. They began the 
school year taking school pictures, award- 
ing honor sweaters, keys, and certificates 
to students who have maintained a 7.0 
average throughout high school. PTA held 
a chili supper, sold license plates, pub- 
lished a newsletter, worked in the Book- 
store and provided aid whenever needed. 
They also provide funds for worthy school 
causes. At the end of each semester, the 
PTA awards blue and red ribbons to honor 
roll and honorable mention students. 

They proudly give two $100.00 awards 
to graduating seniors as well as $25.00 to 
any student maintaining straight A's 
throughout high school. 

Through the year students at Tech are 
their main concern. We are fortunate in 
having many wonderful parents who will- 
ingly give of their time.
